    Twins: Lewis Thorpe, LHP (No. 9) -- 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K (Triple-A Rochester); Alex Kirilloff, OF (No. 2, MLB No. 13) -- 1-for-4, HR (Double-A Pensacola)
    After tossing five innings of two-run ball in his MLB debut this past Sunday, Thorpe was back pitching for Rochester on Friday, and he delivered another solid outing in a 4-2 win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In a seven-inning game that was the first of a scheduled doubleheader, Thorpe tossed six frames and notched his first quality start since May 12. It was the sixth time in 15 starts for the Red Wings that the lefty struck out at least eight. Now that Thorpe has had his first taste of big league experience, it's possible he'll be back in the Majors later this season, especially if he continues to have quality outings. It has been a rough season for Kirilloff, starting late due to injury and then spending more time on the IL during the campaign thanks for another ailment. The 21-year-old former first-rounder hasn't really had a chance to settle in with the Blue Wahoos, a step up after splitting last season between Cedar Rapids and Fort Myers at the Class A and Class A Advanced levels. Friday's homer was yet another step in the right direction for Kirilloff, who has RBIs in three straight games and snapped a streak of six starts without an extra-base hit. He's not batting at the .348 clip he posted last season, but .272 in a stop-and-start campaign a level up is a decent start. The Twins will want to see him build upon that and stay healthy as the season marches on. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Royce Lewis, SS (No. 1, No. 7 in MLB) -- 2-for-5, HR, 2 RBI (Class A Advanced Fort Myers)
    The All-Star break appears to have rejuvenated Lewis, who has homered in back-to-back games and is 5-for-12 (.417) over three games since returning from the SiriusXM Futures Game. The 2017 No. 1 overall Draft pick is having a bit of a down year offensively, hitting .237 with seven homers after hitting .292 with 14 homers in 2018. However, June was Lewis' best month of the season, and he has at least one hit in five of the six games he's played in July. In fact, he has four multihit efforts this month and may be on his way to a strong second half. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Trevor Larnach, OF (No. 4, MLB No. 93) -- 2-for-4, HR, 3 RBI, BB; Jordan Balazovic, RHP (No. 5, MLB No. 99) -- 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K (Class A Adv Fort Myers)
    Larnach's sixth home run of the year was a game-tying two-run shot in the third inning, and he later padded Fort Myers' lead in the seventh with an RBI single en route to his second straight multihit performance. The 2018 first-rounder from Oregon State is putting together an impressive first full season in the Florida State League, with a .310/.377/.458 line, six homers and 26 doubles in 82 games for the Miracle. Balazovic, fresh off of tossing a scoreless frame in Sunday's Futures Game, entered out of the bullpen to allow just one baserunner over four scoreless frames to seal Fort Myers' 8-4 win against Bradenton. The 20-year-old righty recorded half of his outs via the strikeout while throwing 39 of 55 pitches for strikes. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Alex Kirilloff, OF (No. 2, MLB No. 13) -- 3-for-4, 2 R, 2B, RBI (Double-A Pensacola)
    Kirilloff has looked like his 2018 self since returning from the injured list, as Saturday's three-hit performance gives him a .323 average and 11 extra-base hits (3 HR) over his 25 games. A wrist injury suffered during Spring Training delayed the start of Kirilloff's first Double-A campaign until early May after a 2018 season in which he ranked among the Minor League leaders with a .348 average (third), 71 extra-base hits (first), 296 total bases (first) and 101 RBIs (seventh). With his impressive feel to hit seemingly back in place, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the 21-year-old outfielder go on a power surge to close out the season. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Jose Miranda, 2B/3B (No. 15) -- 3-for-4, 2B, RBI (Class A Advanced Fort Myers)
    Miranda has hits in each of the past three games, lifting his average up to .238 through 81 games. The 21-year-old, a second-round pick from the 2016 Draft, hasn't produced a ton early in his career and is a .255 hitter through 321 games, but he does have a pure swing and outstanding bat-to-ball skills. Miranda is very difficult to strike out and is adept at using the whole field. Twins prospects stats

    RP: Jordan Balazovic, Fort Myers Miracle (Class A Advanced)
    (Twins No. 5 prospect/MLB No. 99)
    1-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 G, 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 SO, 0.25 WHIP

    The Twins eased Balazovic back into the Florida State League with a relief appearance after he worked in the Futures Game, and he responded with six strikeouts in four nearly perfect innings. He owns a 2.58 ERA, 97/19 K/BB ratio and .195 opponent average in 69 2/3 innings between two Class A assignments.

    Twins: Wander Javier, SS (No. 6) -- 4-for-5, 2 HR, 6 RBI (Class A Cedar Rapids)
    By all measures the 2019 season has been a challenging one for Javier, who missed all of '18 due to labrum surgery (non-throwing shoulder). He entered Monday with a .134 overall average and was batting just .049 in 11 games this month before erupting to hit a grand slam as part of a two-homer, four-hit game for the Kernels. The 20-year-old shortstop doubled his home run total in the process, and his six RBIs marked a career high. He was a standout in the Appalachian League in 2017, when he batted .299/.383/.471 over 41 games in his second pro season after signing with the Twins for $4.5 million in July 2015.
